Dudley Square, October 20
Akwaeke Emezi is a fiction writer, memoirist, and visual artist whose debut novel, Freshwater, is currently in early development for a television series on FX. A 2018 National Book Foundation “5 Under 35” honoree, Emezi has had work appear in The Cut, Buzzfeed, and Vogue.com. Their latest release, Pet, is what the School Library Journal called “a riveting and important read that couldn’t be more well timed to our society’s struggles with its own monsters.”
